that last week, their polls showed mitt romney up four to five points in ohio. by monday, mitt romney was leading president obama in these ohio republican internal polls by just one point. they've seen his numbers go down. the obama campaign tells me that he's consistently led two to four points in their internal polling. you might say it's spin, but these two campaigns are seeing very different data. >> do you trust these people that are giving you these numbers? are they just giving you numbers, or do you really believe them? which of these people are the most credible when it comes to numbers when you match them up against other evidence? >> one of the things that the romney campaign was suggesting, just about an hour ago on a conference call that they had, the romney pollster, neil newhouse, was saying that he doesn't buy some of these national polls, because he was just pointing out that the quinnipiac "new york times" poll, and said that was weighted more heavily toward registered voters than likely voters and thought that it sort of overshowed a little bit of enthusiasm for dem
talking about obama-romney. and her four-year-old finally had enough. >> i'm tired of bronco bamma and mitt romney. >> that's why you're crying? oh, it will be over soon abbie okay? the election will be over soon, okay? >> okay. >> oh. >> cenk: that pretty much summarizes the whole country's feelings about this election. and who didn't love the new name, bronco bamma. by the way, how bad ass is that? it's so much better if that's his name--bronco bamma. they have been piling the elbows on this four-year-old during the whole campaign making her listen to bronco bamma and romney, well finally she gets to speak to all of us and puts them in the ring--here comes abigael evans. she has had enough of you. she has had enough. all right look, one more funny part to this story. npr host mark memmott went and apologized to her. he said, we've been running this thing so much, but actually the real people who should apologize are the guys who make the ads. my god especially if you live in a swing states like colorado where she does. ad after ad after ad, abigael, we hear you. we feel your
republican, but the in your blog, you point out that romney will be stumping there in the last four days. is that evidence that the romney campaign doesn't feel that it's in the bag for them and that there could be movement there for the president? >> it's not in the bag, that's for sure. the reason we have it in the republican camp is because it leans slightly republican. one of the reporters down there, adam smith of the tampa bay times says romney probably has a lead in that corridor that often determines florida elections. but at the same time, he says the obama camp has been doing an extraordinary job in mining the maximum out of the heavily democratic south florida area. that could even it out. the reason romney is there is because his lead is very tenuous. i think he does have a lead. but we're talking about a point. we're not talking about three or four points. so that's why you have to keep the pressure up. that's why he's in florida. that's why he's in virginia. frankly, it's why the president is going to was which is and to ohio. it's to keep the pressure on, to keep their nar

said christie needs to redeclare for romney or take the blame for the next four years. do they need to reto their vow? >> if i were the romney campaign and believe me i'm not -- my advice is obviously from a tainted source but if i were, i would give chris to come in to pennsylvania and appear with governor romney. i think that, number one, would be good for chris christie's future in the republican party and two at least meet some of the appearance of him being with president obama. i think rupert mourdock had a moment of sanity. a brief moment of sanity. >> all right. governor ed rendell thank you very much. >> thanks guys. hang in there. >> thank you. from biggy small to nate dog. right ahead nate the number cruncher is take a break from his saturday cartoons and talks about what he calls the popular vote nightmare. i'm done!

voted for president obama last time but we just can't afford four more yes. [ romney ] i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. >> virginia is made up of people with many points of view. you may get a different field for this election. >> who better than gordon peterson to set out on the road to get a feel for which way the state might go. what did you learn? >> i do not have a clue which we will go. it is that tight. this time reaction is in -- the action is in northern virginia. you do get a sense of how divided the state is. in 2008, the counties went for obama. the west went for mccain. >> president obama is going to win. >> to close to call. >> this is not your grandfather 's virginia. especially northern virginia where ruling hills and fields have given way to suburban sprawl. in prince william county, michael is trying to hold on to the family farm. how much longer can you hold out? >> i have no idea. i have to make this form stay and work and it does not work right have to go west. >> prince william county went for obama four years ago and the county has picked a wi
for the last four years. and he is offering them up as change. >> romney sayshitting battleground states as well today he is continuing to hammer the president on the economy and said that obama hasn't managed to turn things around over the last four years and romney says it's time to give someone with economic experience a shot at running things. attacking me does not make an agenda it doesn't get people back to work. we don't need a secretary of business to understand business we need a president who understands business and i do. he went on to say he knows the president's supporters are chanting for more years in t. has a new chance, five more days. the highest ranking penn state official to be charged in what the state attorney general says was a conspiracy of silence covering up the sex abuse in the rape from the former football coach gerry sandusky to other officials into the former athletic director gary schulz also reviewed those charges today. three powerful and influential men who helped position at the very top of one of the most prestigious universities in the nation three m
. >> that's right. we are on i-four. and so many republican votes and romney is concentrating. and polls show romney has an edge and the romney republican side of things things they are fairly safe here. earlier in kissimee mr. romney pointed out he will not go to virginia where he had had three events scheduled for tomorrow. the evening event was postponed last night and other two were cancel would. it is a critical state. but because of hurricane sandy, no virginia events for romney. this is how he let the crowd go in florida where it is not even raining now. >> i was looking forward to ande hurricane is headed up there and i spoke with governor mcdonald and we talked about that. he said you know, first responders really need to focus on the preparation for the storm. we'll go tho to ohio instead. cope the folk necessary virginia and new jersey and new york and on the coast in your minds and you know how tough the hurricanes can be and our hearts go out to them. interesting that they are applauding to go to ohio. the buck eye state will be pivotal. and early voting began in florida. it
then the swing states won't matter, if romney wins the popular vote by three or four points then he is going to manage to win enough of the swing states. >> rose: let's be clear though if romney wins the popular vote by four or five points, then he will also win enough of the swing states to win the election because the premise being that the swing states won't be that much different from -- >> ohio is a swing state for a reason in that it resemitbls united states, microsome, microcosm, urban areas, you could have a case where romney wins the popular vote by one point and obama wins high row in iowa by one point that is possible, maybe one or two-point shift, but there is hmm no way to look at the history of this country or try to do the more complex things i do mathematical models of it, very unlikely to have win the popular by four or five point and lose the electorial poll. >> rose: why go the polls show romney winning the national vote and not winning the majority of swing states? >> well i should say gallup is something of an exception, if you look at the average of polls, for example,
closer than the president won four years ago i think the momentum is with romney and the obama people are not just spinning when they say, look, out of that first debate in denver he doesn't have momentum where he overwhelmed us he brought home the base be does president's in number has not chanced by any means but pretty pistol hid and that means governor romney has upward momentum or has had it, maybe that has stalled we don't really though but the president does not have bad momentum he is not collapsing in any way, i think that the momentum in this race can has always been difficult to pull off because we have so many people decided, whatever you think the model is accurate, whatever model you think accurately decide how many persuadable voters there are, it is a small must be so momentums is measures in ins tens of thousands rather than a mass swing. >> rose: do the republicans in this race more enthuse wraferk than the democrats? >> i think they are, if you look, you read all of the polling data in a sophisticated way, and you go out in the country and go to events, i don't thin
out. for romney changed from four years ago. >> this requires as change. >> it's a different audience. >> the governor leads among white men, 66-32% and leads the most national polls where the president has a slight lead in many of the battleground states. that is up has both campaigns feeling confident they have the voters the ground game to bring home a victory. >> somebody is going to be wrong on november 7th so very different assumptions the campaigns 6 about the kinds of people who are going to turn out to vote. >> how close this election. one ohio voter wrote facebook, ann romney called in to wish him happy birthday. >> it's unclear whether sandy could bring the president off the campaign trail proving how important early voting is for both campaigns. >> terry: this morning the national weather service sandy is a hurricane again after being downgraded to tropical storm status. residents are being told to stock up with supplies for three days. super storm is expected to make landfall on monday night. airlines are warning about delays. five states have already declared a state of
, -- >> this is an advantage to getting obama in, it's a four year stretch, and opposed to romney who could run 8 years, and that would delay andrew. >> are you yefiguring -- >> andrew versus christie. >> let's >> the home stretch, american presidential race is undecided, not by the popular vote, or even by who wins a majority of states, but by who wins a majority of the electrical college votes, within those states. it takes 270 to win. the votes are's portioned by population, and the rules are winner take all. whoever wins the most popular votes in a given states wins all of that state's electrical votes. question: how many states are in play that can go either way? >> depending on how you count it, between 8 and a dozen, that are sitting on the fence, and, funny thing is, the polling has been varied, but romn has been strong overall, but obama strong in the states that count. that's where there is thero possibility there could be one winner of the most votes while the other gets the electrical. >> what are the battleground states? >> romney has about 191 locked up, he has to win florida, north caro
and that is the overwhelming issue, how will we turn this economy around. it hasn't happened in four years and governor romney gives us the possible to create the growth in jobs we all need. >>neil: five days out from the election and officials are scrambling to deal with the damage. ahead of voting, the blitzing, the battle not buckeye state is heating up as both campaigns start in. governor kasich is here next. ♪ ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] don't just reject convention. drown it out. introducing the all-new 2013 lexus ls f sport. an entirely new pursuit. >>neil: take a look at this, this is new jersey, it was a very wealthy shore town before hurricane sandy rolled in. this is what it looks like today. after hurricane sandy. it is almost unrecognizable. but it is not just this city, but it is the entire new jersey landscape, the whole shore that seems to have been completely uprooted, redesigned, and by mother nature's own whim, redone rick is on long beach, new jersey, with the latest. i imagine were the same there, too? rick: absolutely. the mayor says they have in water. no power. no gas. no sewer. no te
for the president, a new college poll shows mitt romney behind just four points. what jumps out at you there, mike? >> well, two things. we see mitt romney continuing to close the gap. but we see the president ahead again and again. they're in the margin of error. the president is always ahead. but very little room to grow. republicans are saying that they don't believe these polls. willie, you're not old enough, but some people will remember the old accuracy and media bumper sticker, i don't believe the post, and i think republicans should get one that says i don't believe the poll. because they spend a lot of their time on conference calls talking to reporters, telling them that these polls don't reflect the reality that they're seeing. for instance, in ohio, neil newhouse, the romney pollster, will say if we win independents, we win. so shethese polls are just clos enough that either side could be right. >> mark halperin, when you look at these polls, the president again has leads in all of these swing states. margin of error leads in some places. what do you see here? >> i'm going to take a ri
oour and consumption over the past four years. now, mitt romney has a history of tackling climate change. he signed a cap-and-trade plan as governor of massachusetts, but has rebuffed it since. there was no shortage of adulation of mitt romney's rally in virginia, but there was also very familiar word on the podium. he wants to be the change candidate too. >> would you want four more years with 23 million people looking for good job? would you want a full you are more years of declining earnings and raising taxes? would you want a full you are more years with trillion dollar deficits every year? >> both campaigns are playing the confidence game. both sounded upbeat about their candidate's chances and who can blame them when the polls are so close. behind the scenes, they must be very nervous. bbc news, washington. " there's good news for burma. the world bank has proposed development grants of $80 million and will provide another $160 million of credit once the country has cleared its existing debt. it's helping with the asian development bank and international monetary fund. this
that but the romney camp will enjoy that a bit. looking at the polls tonight, wisconsin in four years ago, president obama stormed the state by 14 points. this does seem to be a seismic shift in the state. >> there is. wisconsin has become a republican state by virtue of the incredibly intense organizational efforts there of governor scott walker's people, americans for prosperity and various other political groups that have really mobilized the free market forces in the state. they have been through a recall election. a senate recall. a judicial election. and, of course, the original election in 2010 and they won them all and i think wisconsin is going to go for romney. let me put this in a context, greta. i don't think any one has the overview. 179 lectorral votes and states john mccain carried. indiana and north carolina where he just barely carried and they will undoubtedly go republican. 25 votes between them. that brings you up to 204. then you have 51 votes in swing states that have at this point probably swung to romney. florida 29 votes where he is four or five ahead. virginia 13 where he i
states that have at this point probably swung to romney. florida 29 votes where he is four or five ahead. virginia 13 where he is five or six ahead. and colorado 10 where he is four ahead. so that brings him up to 255. he has got to get to 270. so he is 15 short. then you have a market basket of 8 states that cast 98 elector aral votes where the polls are tied. new hampshire four votes. pennsylvania 20 votes, romney 2 ahead. ohio 18 votes. they are tied. iowa 6 votes, they are tied. wisconsin ten votes, they are are tied. michigan 15 votes, romney is one behind. minnesota 16 votes. romney is three behind. nevada 9 votes and romney s two behind. in all of those states obama is under 50. and so since we are going to get three quarters or four fifths of the undecided vote for romney i think romney has a good chance to win all those states but he is certainly going to win at least one so he is going to get at least the 15 votes. this business that everybody should hang on what happens in ohio is ridiculous. he could lose ohio and carry either pennsylvania or minnesota or michigan and wiscons
